Alcohol on the American River - Sacramento County's Regional Parks District is asking the County Board of Supervisors to expand a ban on alcohol on the American River beyond major holidays. The request is in response to the loosely organized Rafting Gone Wild event that resulted in several arrests and a number of injuries. The alcohol ban would apply to the area of the river between Hazel and Watt Avenue and not occur on a set date. The Sacramento County's Regional Parks District Director would have the authority to institute the ban whenever he or she believed there was a reasonable belief that alcohol consumption on the river will result in significant issues of public safety. To discuss the balance of allowing alcohol on the American River while preserving public safety is Dianna Poggetto, Executive Director of the American River Parkway Foundation.
